Fernandina's farmers market is closed Saturday, BUT there will be a nice sampling of both the farmers and arts markets on North 14th Street instead.
While the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market will NOT be open on North Seventh Street in historic Fernandina Beach due to the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, a few of the vendors from both the farmers and the arts market will be setting up shop at the corner of Lime and South 14th Streets on Saturday, April 30, 2016.
This sampling of both markets will include fine arts and crafts, and some artisan food vendors, too.
You can expect to see barrels of olives and pickles from Olive My Pickle, wild-caught shrimp from Chesser Seafood, Upstream Wild Alaska Seafood will have scallops, salmon, salmon burgers and dip; and homemade goat soaps will be found at Soap-Crafters… just to name a few.
So, if you are looking to avoid the chaos of Shrimp Festival, but still want to enjoy a little outdoor shopping and fresh shrimp – come on out around 9:00 a.m. Saturday only, and see what these fine exhibitors have to offer.
